I Rise to Parallel The Sun

Today's "Why I Rise" post comes from 2014 cast member of the Boston Community Production of The Vagina Monologues, Sarah Cadorette.  We invite you to join Sarah in the One Billion Rising event at 5:30 in Copley Square on Friday February 14th.  For more information on the One Billion Rising global movement, visit

I Rise

mothers spinning ghosts
from their wombs
popping marrow of girlfriends
women with no skin left on their teeth
from all the times they've said,
"Just barely"
daughters of broken circadian rhythms
who only know gyration
sisters of impotence, used as currency
this is why I rise:
to parallel the sun
